Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I read a story here, I look for continuity of the plot and grammatical points. I give plenty of positive feedback and constructive criticism. I believe there should be a balance of both when highlighting the parts of a story or chapter. Grammar, punctuation, plot-development, word choice are all parts of beta-ing I am able to help with.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am better at looking for spelling errors. Spell check does that rather well, but it doesn't always catch the misuse of "their" or "there" and etc. I also can spot grammatical errors for the little parts, such as misplaces commas or semi-colons in writing dialogue. Constructing a well-developed plot I will be more than happy to help out with.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not British/English. I cannot spot the inaccuracies that would be involved in /

Time may be an issue, so please message me and I will be more than happy to discuss at what rate I will be able to completely read and make notes on your work. Timing depends on what kind of work you are writing, some will take longer. poem vs. multi-chapter story vs. short story.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am open to many types of stories, except for a specific one which I will mention in the next section. I am open to poems as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I absolutely will NOT accept beta-reading for slash, sexual, vulgar, or anything that falls into the category of unsuitable material. If you must (which is never the case) write vulgarity, please limit to just a few.
